Lexus IS 2020

The 2020 Lexus IS range of configurations is currently priced from $60,500. Our most recent review of the 2020 Lexus IS resulted in a score of 7.1 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Senior Journalist Richard Berry had this to say at the time: The IS 350 F Sport feels old school from the naturally aspirated V6 and eight-speed auto to its solid weightiness, and while it’s not as sharp and responsive as some people may want, it delivers a comfortable and powerful driving experience. I’d think twice if you’re planning to use it as a family car, but if your nest is suddenly empty then it could be perfect – that is if you can get in and out of it.

This is what Richard Berry liked most about this particular version of the Lexus IS: Fierce styling, Naturally aspirated V6, Comfortable

The Lexus IS Sedan competes with similar models like the BMW 3 Series, Genesis G70 and Volvo S60 in the Under $70k category category.

The 2020 Lexus IS carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1500 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Lexus IS 2020 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Lexus IS here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Lexus IS200 2002: Is it worth keeping my car is issues are starting to arise?

    That’s a difficult call to make. The car has done quite a few kilometres and is in the twilight of its life. If it’s been properly serviced all its life to date and you continue to service it well you should be able to keep on top of any issues that crop up. But at the same you should anticipate that problems might occur more often now, and that will involve more expense. Looking forward you need to decide if you want to gamble on it giving little or no trouble, or get out of it. If you are not sure about it get out of it now.

  • Do trade-in valuations consider added options?

    The trade-in valuations generally don't take options into account, that's consider covered by the range that goes along with the valuation. The trade-in guide on your car is $28,000-$31,500. You should also remember that it's a guide only, and there's no reason why you shouldn't negotiate a better price, and to shop around to get the best price you can. You are better off buying a higher model with everything fitted to it than a lesser model and then optioning it up. It will always be the lesser model, no matter what's fitted to it.

  • Mustang, 370Z, IS350F, 86 or MX-5?

    If you don’t want a convertible, which rules out the MX-5 as my easy first pick, then the 86 is the car for driving enjoyment on a reasonable budget. But don’t overlook its Subaru twin, the BRZ, which is my choice of the two. Both get The Tick, having shared our Car of the Year award.

  • Lexus or Mercedes-Benz?

    The Benz is so far ahead of the Lexus that it's not even a contest. The C-Class gets The Tick and is also one of the favourites for our Car of the Year award. I wouldn't bother with the C250 unless it has some standard features you like, because the C200 is a brilliant car.
